THE STORY:

INTERVOL INC wrote -

A dedicated group of volunteer medical professionals will be returning to Haiti June 7 through June 21, 2014 to provide medical care, and they need your help!

A note from the volunteers:

We will return to Haiti to provide medical care at Klinik Lasante, a rural medical clinic located in Leogane, the epicenter of the 2010 earthquake. Our mission will include traveling to isolated villages to treat chronic and acute medical conditions to people who would otherwise go without care. People walk for miles through the mountains to see us. Once triaged, the critically ill are often transferred to Klinik Lasante via moto for more advanced treatment. Last year we sent an 18-year-old woman to the Klinik on the back of a motorcycle to receive iv fluid resuscitation and antibiotic therapy for Typhoid, a condition rarely seen in the industrialized world but a serious health threat in the developing world. The cost to transfer and to treat her condition was $15. It saved her life. We were also able to enroll an orphanage, without any outside financial resources, into Klinik Lasante. The kids continue to receive care and the Klinik sends us updates. Our work with Klinik Lasante is helping provide Haitians a continuous healthcare network even once we are gone.

This year we are sending two teams of 8 medical volunteers that include a cardiologist, an obstetrician, a pharmacist, numerous advanced practice nurses, registered nurses, and technical aides.

We will use your gift to purchase much needed medical supplies, to hire local interpreters, to provide medical transfers, and to support Klinik Lasante.

Your donation will not only change lives, it will save lives. Mesi Ampil! (Which means "thank you very much" in Haitian Creole).
